Should We Talk About the Weather?
Let’s just talk about the crappy weather one last time and not talk about it again until there is something nice and pretty and beautiful and spring-like to talk about.
There was a little snow here on Saturday…
Which actually was a tiny bit pretty. It looked pretty against the maple tree buds, which I then felt a little sorry for. I hope they are ok.
Then this happened on Sunday and Monday:
You may have noticed the snow plow Jeep in the top picture. It sits there still. The motor froze because it was so cold and because it was sitting outside because it was not supposed to snow anymore. So Paul had to trudge to the shed and find a shovel instead.
And all this snow made it much more difficult for me to work on my 10,000 steps in the doodlebugs backyard:
While they made snow angels:
Let’s hope that’s it. Seriously, spring. Let’s go.
In the meantime, Paul and I tried to celebrate one of our favorite spring things, the opening of Jumpin’ Jacks Drive-In:
In the cold and the rain. But it was yummy, so it was worth it. (That’s my pistachio soft serve on the left. YUM. I love pistachio.)
In knitting news, I had several classes last weekend, including the TWF(Three Way Fun) Cowl class, where they all got a good start on these fun, quick cowls:
And we had the first session of the Fish Lips Kiss Heel class, where everyone got to feel slightly uncomfortable while someone else traced their bare or sock-clad foot:
But it was a necessary first step to make these socks that will fit their feet perfectly! Stay tuned for their progress after the second class….
And I started this cute Milo vest on Sunday:
….and finished it on Monday. Full disclosure, it’s the newborn size so it’s really tiny and took less than 137 yards, which is one ball of the Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino Tonals yarn, which I love, Love, LOVE!!!
Ok. Do you think that cabbage patch doll picture is a little creepy to model a human sweater? I kinda do, but they really are about the size of a newborn, so….. So here is a normal picture:
So adorable. Fun, easy pattern. This will be a class at The Spinning Room in May!
That’s it. That’s all the snow talk for this year. But there will be tons more knitting talk. I’m still working on my cotton cardi. Just giving my hands a rest. And I’ve got a must-knit-by-September project for someone-who-won’t-be-named-but-is-going-to-a really-excellent-college-so-excellent-in-fact-that-it-is-an-ivy-league-college-in-the-fall that needs to be started.
